Come to the land of peace

Readings, 2nd Church Berkeley, 5/4/16
KJV Phil. 4:7 1st the
7 …the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
KJV Isa. 57:15, 19
15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. 19 I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the LORD; and I will heal him.
KJV Isa. 11:1, 2, 6, 9
1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: 2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; 6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. 9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
KJV Mark 1:14 1st Jesus
14 …Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
KJV Mark 4:35-39
35 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side. 36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. 37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. 38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? 39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
KJV John 14:27
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
KJV Eph. 4:31, 32
31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
KJV Col. 3:15
15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
KJV I Cor. 12:31
31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
KJV I Cor. 13:1-8 (to 1st :)
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. 4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. 8 Charity never faileth:
KJV 96:12-23, 31
This material world is even now becoming the arena
for conflicting forces. On one side there will be discord
and dismay; on the other side there will be
Science and peace. The breaking up of mate-
rial beliefs may seem to be famine and pestilence, want
and woe, sin, sickness, and death, which assume new
phases until their nothingness appears. These disturb-
ances will continue until the end of error, when all
discord will be swallowed up in spiritual Truth.
Mortal error will vanish in a moral chemicalization.
This mental fermentation has begun, and will continue
until all errors of belief yield to understanding.
During this final conflict, wicked minds will endeavor
to find means by which to accomplish more evil; but
those who discern Christian Science will hold crime in
check. They will aid in the ejection of error. They
will maintain law and order, and cheerfully await the
certainty of ultimate perfection.
KJV 540:5
In Isaiah we read: “I make peace, and create evil. I
the Lord do all these things;” but the prophet referred to
divine law as stirring up the belief in evil to its
utmost, when bringing it to the surface and re-
ducing it to its common denominator, nothingness. The
muddy river-bed must be stirred in order to purify the
stream. In moral chemicalization, when the symptoms
of evil, illusion, are aggravated, we may think in our igno-
rance that the Lord hath wrought an evil; but we ought
to know that God’s law uncovers so-called sin and its
effects, only that Truth may annihilate all sense of evil
and all power to sin.
KJV 139:9-14
Reforms have commonly been attended with
bloodshed and persecution, even when the end has been
brightness and peace; but the present new, yet old, re-
form in religious faith will teach men patiently and wisely
to stem the tide of sectarian bitterness, whenever it flows
KJV 329:26-31 If
men understood their real spiritual source to be all bless-
edness, they would struggle for recourse to the spiritual
and be at peace; but the deeper the error into which mor-
tal mind is plunged, the more intense the opposition to
spirituality, till error yields to Truth.
KJV 265:23-30
Who that has felt the loss of human peace has not gained
stronger desires for spiritual joy? The aspiration after
heavenly good comes even before we discover
what belongs to wisdom and Love. The loss
of earthly hopes and pleasures brightens the ascending
path of many a heart. The pains of sense quickly inform
us that the pleasures of sense are mortal and that joy is
KJV 144:14 (only), 20
Human will-power is not Science.
Truth, and
not corporeal will, is the divine power which says to
disease, “Peace, be still.
KJV 214:28-30, 32
Neither age nor
accident can interfere with the senses of Soul,
and there are no other real senses.
Spirit’s senses are with-
out pain, and they are forever at peace. Nothing can hide
from them the harmony of all things and the might and
permanence of Truth.
KJV 150:4-8
To-day the healing power of Truth is widely demon-
strated as an immanent, eternal Science, instead of a
phenomenal exhibition. Its appearing is the
coming anew of the gospel of “on earth peace,
good-will toward men.
KJV 226:14-15
God has built a higher platform of human rights, and
He has built it on diviner claims.
KJV 264:24-31
Spiritual living
and blessedness are the only evidences, by which we can
recognize true existence and feel the unspeakable peace
which comes from an all-absorbing spiritual love.
When we learn the way in Christian Science and rec-
ognize man’s spiritual being, we shall behold and under-
stand God’s creation, – all the glories of earth and heaven
and man.
